~ ~WARNING ~ ~ SNAKE ~ ~ ~~~~~~~~~~~ Don't Look!

We were working on Section 5. There was a dirt mound adjacent to a very old tree fall. As we began to cut into the dirt mound (you can see our cut) we disturbed someone from their resting habitat beneath the mossy log.
What is Callie Looking At??
This serpentine beauty moved up to the highest point on the stump
to see what all of the chopping and raking was about on the ground.
He took up a perch and settled in to watch us work.
For all of our time spent digging and even chainsaw cutting the stump.

Notice the red dirt on his head, we rustled him out of the ground with our digging.He just set there watching.
What a beauty, blue or black? This shot shows where the real name for this black snake comes from. "Eastern Blue Racer" or
Coluber constrictor constrictor.
I was intrigued by the way she had looped into a coil and stepped up to photograph. You can see my boot in the top right corner of the photo.
I think this is an archetypal image. The masculine and feminine forms.
Adam and Eve in one.
Some thing to ponder in the beauty of NATURE.
